We have an exciting line up for you at StoryFest 2019. Twenty-four writers are coming from across this continent to tell their stories. Some share their love of words through fiction, others by delving into our history, our culture or by casting an eye to our future. We will celebrate the sound of words and the use of images to tell stories on the page and in film.

Festivals thrive on an enormous amount of community goodwill and volunteers are an intrinsic part of their success. Volunteering includes ticket collection, directing festival-goers to venues and transporting artists. We'd also love to have you on board.

You can register your interest here. Applications close 24th May and successful applicants will be advised on 31st May 2019.

StoryFest Inc hosted a fundraising event on Saturday 21 July 2018 at the historic Milton Theatre which sold out. The highlight of the evening was a very special 'in conversation' with Markus Zusak, one of Australia's most loved authors.
Don't worry if you missed out. You can hear the whole thing on the Writes4Women podcast
You'll find some wonderful photos from the night in our  Gallery.

StoryFest is a celebration of storytelling in all its forms - whether it be through prose, poetry or song. Join us for a weekend of events, workshops and dinners in some of the finest venues Milton, Mollymook and Ulladulla have to offer. 

Visitors to StoryFest can enjoy all the glorious south coast has to offer. Venues will showcase our beautiful beaches, spectacular wilderness and historic buildings. Foodies will be impressed by our sumptuous restaurants and providores.


Telling stories, be it through prose, poetry or song, is how we connect with each other, understand our past and contemplate our future
